Ian’s 2nd Birthday Cake – Chocolate Peanut Butter

Ian has been going nuts over peanut butter lately, so for this year, we decided to make the Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter cake I made awhile ago.  This time around, I did do something a little different. The first time I made this, I used a standard cake pan along with two cake mixes and […]

Summer Poke Cupcakes Cones

For our Mom’s Group meeting this week, I volunteered to be the MOD since it also happens to Ian’s birthday.  I wanted to bring in cupcakes for the kiddos, but I didn’t want Jill to have to worry about the cupcake wrappers and what not, so I wanted to make the cupcakes in ice cream […]

This is another recipe from my Grandmother Birdie. This is one recipe that is easy to make and you will always have the ingredients on hand. There’s never a reason to say that you didn’t have what it takes to make a cake on the spur of the moment. Ingredients: 3 cup flour 2 cup […]

Volcano Cake

I would never have thought that I could make a cake in under 10 minutes using the microwave, but it’s possible with a rice cooker.  The Pampered Chef has this recipe for a “volcano cake” that uses their rice cooker and it so unbelievably easy.  Seriously, this is the cake that a 2 year old […]

Cool Whip & Raspberry Summer Sensation

I had completely forgotten about this recipe book I picked up at the grocery store. All it has are recipes made from Jell-O and Cool Whip. A lot of them look really easy, but would make a great presentation. The type of presentation that will make you look like an excellent cook. So I went […]

White Chocolate Velvet Cake

This is a twist on the Chocolate Velvet Cake recipe from the Pampered Chef. The idea of replacing the devil’s food cake with the angel food cake seemed simple enough when I wanted to do something with white chocolate.  The cake came out well enough, however, I have made some slight adjustments to the original […]

Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Cake

Check out this recipe I found through the Pampered Chef. I haven’t had a chance to try this recipe yet, but I never would have thought to try this with my spring form pan. It’s definitely a new take on ice cream cakes and I might try this for Ian’s party next month. Ingredients: Crust […]
